    Microsoft, T-Mobile Apologize For Data Loss, Offer Month Credit



    Sidekick users who lost their data won't be getting it back. T-Mobile and Microsoft say the data is gone.

    T-Mobile and Microsoft (NSDQ: MSFT) said on Saturday that personal information that had disappeared from some customers' Sidekick mobile devices was almost certainly lost and apologized for the incident. Affected data includes contacts, calendar entries, photos, notes, and saved e-mails.

    Too many people starting to rely on the cloud as their only place to store info. Don't be too trusting....even if you have no computer, find a friend or family member with one and back up your info. Never keep it all in one place....

    It does sync. ..you can use intellisync to sync w outlook. Athough I believe it has a onetime charge it would've been worth a lot more had someone done it before the outage

    Or the save contacts to sim option was allways there. The lx was junk though. They told people not to reset the device. But it resets on its own. After reset or bat pull or loss of bat power everything is gone.
